Chicago based singer/songwriter Andrew Francis self-released his second album, It’s Chicago!. Francis – also a member of The Barehand Jugband (mouth harp, guitar and vocals) – possesses a distinctly nasal voice reminiscent of Bob Dylan and is an accomplished guitar player. It’s Chicago! showcases his entertaining yet simple solo blues and folk songs, which are written in the tradition of the Guthries, ruminating on everyday life, the working man, and living in Chicago. Francis is a prolific and disciplined artist who uploads a new song every Monday – check them out at: http://andrewfrancismusicvomit.tumblr.com/. – Written by JFelton
Thanks, Jason, for taking a listen. Glad ya enjoyed it.
Also, remember that I’m playing a the Elbo Room this Saturday, 11/6, as part of the Chicago Root Collective Fall Festival. My set goes from 9pm-9:30pm, or so. I’m playing in the upstairs lounge area. So, drop by, grab a brew and listen to some tunes.
